UPDATE: Man dies after snowmobile plunges through ice in Cambria

VILAS COUNTY, WI (WTAQ) - Authorities urge snowmobilers to stay on marked trails, after another machine fell through the ice on a northern Wisconsin lake.  

A suburban Chicago man was hospitalized with symptoms of hypothermia, after his snowmobile fell into Eagle Lake in Vilas County Sunday night. It happened around 7 p.m.  

Sheriff's deputies said the machine was submerged chest deep. Rescuers took the man to a hospital.

At least three snowmobile deaths have been reported in Wisconsin this month. The latest was identified Monday as 36-year-old Jeremy Geertsma of Plymouth Michigan.  

Columbia County authorities said his machine crashed into a tree on private land. It happened last Friday near Cambria.

Officials said speed and snow conditions may have been factors. Authorities continue to investigate.

Also, a 30-year-old suburban Chicago man was found dead on Friday in northwest Wisconsin. Authorities said Edward Steinhardt died from exposure, after he crawled out of a truck that crashed through Dilly Lake in Washburn County.
